Oh man, I'm so excited that it is Wednesday. I am ready for this week to be done (any bets on how many more times I'm going to say that before Friday?)
Monday the weather was crazy (as its been all week!) 60 degrees and foggy. I wore a sweatshirt to work (it was "comfy day") and I was too hot!
After work, we went for a walk. We decided to mail most of our cookies from the cookie swap to my brother, who is starting his finals at law school this week. Of course, I took advantage of the nice weather to take pictures of all of the Christmas decorations in our neighborhood too.
Our neighborhood is very coordinated with their seasonal decor. They all do mums in the fall, tulips in the spring and white Christmas lights.
At home, in the suburbs, where everyone's houses are more spread out, I love when everyone has different decor. And I'm a huge fan of multi colored Christmas lights - my dad always used them on the house growing up, and they are currently adorning our tree and window :)
But here, where everything is right next to each other, the coordination works. The white lights and the evergreen swags with their big red bows and the old brick homes and buildings makes it feel like a magical Christmas world that stretches on forever (or at least until it hits the lake!) I'm definitely going to miss this next year!
Do you have a favorite type of outdoor decorations?
